  • Help build a well – so children like Jean, pictured, don’t have to drink filthy river water that’s teeming with parasites, bacteria and animal waste
  • Put taps and pumps in the heart of a community – daily treks to the river with a heavy jerry can are tiring and leave little time for school or work
  • End the threat of diarrhoea, which kills 1,400 children every day

WaterAid is an international charity that works with local partners, decision makers and charities around the world. The way we work is simple and effective, transforming lives by improving access to water, hygiene and sanitation.

In the last 30 years we’ve reached over 17 million people with safe drinking water. Right now, you can help us to reach even more.

Give families access to clean water for life and your kindness will be felt for generations to come.

This is the only water that Jean has to drink. It could kill him.
1,400 children die from diarrhoea every day. We can change this, but not without you.
